This is an exceptional courtroom drama featuring a star-studded cast. About a lawyer defending marines who are charged with murder. These marines claim their actions were under orders of another.
If you like a courtroom drama, then chances are you are a fan of this movie. All of the actors within give top-notch performances. It deals with the issues of morality vs taking military orders, something that can often conflict with one another. It also dives into the chain of command to uncover who gave those orders, why they were given, and most of all how to get someone to admit they gave them.
I’m hard pressed to find a better courtroom drama in the 1990s, in fact.
